Please help us give our valued veterans the services they deserve. Two of the many we help, Kevin and James, tell their stories in the video posted here. They’re retired veterans of the U.S. Marine Corps who live in our Veterans Residence in West Hempstead. They were injured while serving our country, and ended up homeless. They tell their story in this video. We are a non-profit group that has been helping the needy for 125 years. We help almost 25,000 kids, families and seniors on Long Island turn their lives around every year and we love what we do.

Volunteers of America helps veterans in need overcome the barriers that stand between them and a stable, secure life. Our housing units provide case management services for veterans and families; many cities support outreach centers where veterans can receive treatment for PTSD, traumatic brain injuries and addictions. We make sure veterans connect to the benefits they are entitled to, and we make use of the strong bonds forged between veterans by incorporating mentoring and peer-to-peer support. We also provide employment services that include assessment, training and placement. Compensated work programs offer a stipend while training veterans for a new career, and help is available with everything from resume prep to job interviewing, clothing and transportation. Finding work is an important part of building back confidence and pride and sustaining independence. www.voa.org+ More details
Pete came up to me on the streets of San Francisco offering to give me a cover for my phone. He didn't want anything for it. He just must have seen me twittering away and thought I could use one. Not sure where he got them, but I was kind of took back a little that a disabled homeless man was being so nice to a stranger. Pete and I got into a conversion about homeless and life, but mostly about needs. He showed me the tires on his wheelchair where the rubber was pretty much gone. Pete says he lost his leg to bone cancer. Pete says the cancer was a result of being exposed to Agent Orange during his two tours of Vietnam. Pete says he was in housing, but the VA stopped his benefits because of some bureaucracy. I hear this often, and I was reminded of what Dale said to me about the VA when I interviewed him in 2010 now featured in this clip about veteran homelessness http://youtu.be/SGSE4HpTX2s There is good news. I was invited to attend a San Francisco Homes for Heroes meeting today, where in collaboration with a group of national and local services providers, 100 veterans will be housed in the next 100 days. You can find more information here http://www.swords-to-plowshares.org/sf-homes-for-heroes/ I hope and pray this type collaboration and support continue for not just veterans but for all our homeless neighbors.
